These cookies were very easy to make. They turned out moist and light. The taste was great.And they were also very much like those my grandmother used to make. Perfect treat for a cool fall or winter day.

My Mother always made mincemeat cookies for Christmas years ago, but when I asked her for the recipe, she hadn't saved it. This recipe is very similar and I really enjoyed making these cookies. It was a simple recipe and the cookies are really wonderful. Thanks for sharing it!

A nice chewy tasty cookie. After making the first 2 doz, found that they were a little bland. Spicing it up with a bit of cloves/allspice or cinnamon would be good.
